The problem is the contact points in the phone input are worn and possibly the contact points in the charge output are also worn, there's no way to fix it without replacing the charger input and/or getting a new charger. hate to say but might just need to replace the phone

So, this phone, it turns out, is notorious for this. It has a social disorder. Yup. Let me explain- Typically it occurs when the battery gets real low or dies. Then you have no response on any buttons, power included. When plugged in, you may get the 3 blinking/flashing buttons on the bottom, and nothing else.

After that, a variety of solutions out there like taking out the battery, plugging in to PC, resetting, soft or hard boot and a variety of other methods to revive the phone often fail, according to many out there. I myself tried them all. Until I figured this out...
The guy a few posts above me has it right, but I wanted to elaborate, as his post did not help me fix the problem. It is, in many cases, the dead battery that is the problem. The solution however, is not that simple. I plugged the phone in overnight, with different cables, in computer, in wall etc. etc. etc. Nothing worked.

BUT, after trying lots of times, it then suddenly switched on. The reason? When the battery dies, it seems like phones plug for the charger gets embarrassed, and hides in a cupboard....

No, seriously, I am obviously not a tech, so I can only explain at a kindergarten level. To me, it was not making good contact, even though it was plugged in like always. Also, the phone took about 1-2 hours with the cable plugged in properly, before it started charging.

So, if all else fails, before you go hard-core, try manipulating the cable where it plugs into the phone very gently, and leave it for a few hours. Try different angles, and keep trying for a few days, plugged into wall or computer. That's what worked for me. Once the phone starts taking the charge again, it's not embarrassed anymore, and will come out the closet to

My LG Rumors screen is pixeladed and it keeps flashing, turning on and off. When I slide it open it sort of works, but then at messes up again. Now you can't see the bar on the bottom of the screen that...

This is probably a bent pin in you flex cable to the lcd or a poor connection,you will have to open the phone up at the lcd usually 4 screws around the lcd im not familiar with the model you have but this is a general problem with cell phones,after you get it open you should see the flex cable connected to the lcd disconnect and inspect the connection pins the gold looking metal parts if all look the same plug back in the cable making sure its in good and try it out,if this does not work your flex cable may be worn out and since im not familiar with that model i cant tell you how to repair it,well good luck

I just connected my lg rumor to my computer and disconnected it. My phone continues to say that it is still connected with the USB cable, but if I actually do connect it, my phone turns itself on and off.

Make sure when you disconnect any USB devices, safely disconnect them. If you are going to just unplug it without telling the computer when you need to, you will have major problems. Find a little USB icon in the system tray and click on "safely remove hardware."

Lg rumor g-65 error

This worked for me after trying a lot of different ideas. Go where you can find good reception[ 3 bars or more !] take out the battery with the phone on, Wait about 2 minutes and put the battery back in, turn your phone back on and wa la. I guess it updates your phone with its new configuration.
